Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has decided against freshening up his line-up for this afternoon’s trip to Southampton.

While Conte has rarely been a manager to completely rotate his teams, the frantic festive fixture schedule naturally forces most coach’s hands given the sheer relentlessness of it all.

Boasting three games in hand on bitter rivals Arsenal, the Italian was unlikely to make all too many changes, such is the need to make the most of the fixture they’re yet to fulfil.

Crucially, such was their comfort against Crystal Palace on Boxing Day, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg were all afforded rests in the second-half.

Just three changes see Lucas Moura, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga dropped to the bench, with Ben Davies, Harry Winks and Dele Alli starting.

Tottenham XI: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Royal, Winks, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Dele, Son; Kane.

Subs: Gollini, Tanganga, Rodon, Doherty, Skipp, White, Ngombele, Gil, Moura.

Date and kick-off time: 3pm, Tuesday December 28, 2021.

Venue: St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton
